Old Sandwich Road Race

I was recently given the opportunity to get a number for the Old Sandwich Road Race and wanted to tell you guys a little bit about this awesome race! First of all it is coming up fast (June 1st) so Click Here to sign up for the 5k, 10k or half marathon you will not regret it! 

A little bit about the race, it takes place in historic Plymouth, Massachusetts. Not only is Plymouth an incredibly beautiful town full of amazing scenery but it is also home to the famous Plymouth Rock, Plimoth Plantation and is where the Pilgrims first landed in America. The race takes place on Sunday June 1st at Plymouth South High School promptly at 10AM.  There are three races taking place a 5k, 10k and half marathon. 

The 5k course is slightly hilly taking place along Mast Road and Long Pond Road Click Here for exact route. The 10k is flat in the beginning and then more uphill towards the end. It starts at the historic Plimoth Plantation it crosses Old Sandwich Road and runs along the Eel river basin preserve through several horse farms and finishes on South Plymouth high school's track. A stadium finish you do not want to miss! The stands will be full of people cheering with music playing. Click Here to see the exact route. Lastly the half marathon starts off with ocean cliff views and runs about 6 miles down Old Sandwich road which is flat and fast which is always nice during a half marathon. You then travel along horse farms where you encounter a few hills and finished again with a stadium finish at South Plymouth High School. Click Here to see the route.

All three races are not to be missed! The races are full of beautiful sites with lots of history! Don't miss out! Make sure to sign up before this race fills up, It is sure to be an amazing day!
